Forged by Kenji Togashi-san, this knife has a bit of heft to it and the kurouchi finish provides some rust resistance.

  • After use, wash with warm water and a non-abrasive cloth or sponge and dish soap. Dry immediately and thoroughly to prevent rust from forming.
  • When cutting acidic ingredients (eg. rhubarb, onions, tomatoes), wipe or wash immediately after use.
  • Because this knife is made of carbon steel, it will eventually develop a patina, or oxidation, that will eventually help with rust prevention. Be aware that this looks like discolouration.
  • Never put this knife in the dishwasher! The high temperature will ruin the wood handle and may dull the blade!
  • Avoid hard ingredients like nuts, bones, and frozen foods. They may chip the edge.
